800 MHz implementation project

In November 2015, the ACMA released a decision paperThe ACMA’s long-term strategy for the 803–960 MHz band for the future use of the 803–960 MHz band (the 800 MHz band) in Australia. This paper set out the decisions and implementation plan and marked the conclusion of the 800 MHz band review (803–960 MHz) that began in 2011 as the first major revision of arrangements in this important spectrum band.

This decisions paper set out the proposed changes to the band. As some of these affect a large number of stakeholders, the implementation plan has been formulated to consist of six milestones spread out over a number of years:

  • Milestone 1—compliance end date: 30 June 2019
    •  Concerning services in the 849–852 MHz frequency segment
  •  Milestones 2 and 3—compliance end date: 30 June 2021
    • Concerning services in the 852–857 MHz paired with 928–933 MHz frequency segment
  • Milestones 4, 5 and 6—compliance end date: 30 June 2024
    • Concerning services in the 820–825 MHz paired with 865–870 MHz and 857–865 MHz frequency segment.

The tune-up will provide information on the band review and provide an opportunity for stakeholders to gain more information on the 800 MHz implementation policy and the impact of various milestones on their apparatus licenses.

The presentation will also include an update on the 400 MHz implementation project, which is in its final milestone of compliance.
